26 Weeks: Oh baby!

Oh boy...oh baby! 

The bump is here to stay...and no matter what I wear now...there's no hiding it!

How far along? 26 Weeks {27 starting tomorrow!}
Baby Size: A cabbage or the length of a English hothouse cucumber {about 14 inches}
Total weight gain: 15-16 pounds

Maternity clothes? Maternity leggings...I am loving Be Maternity leggings over at Target...SO comfy.  And I just got some pants from Gilt.com along with a Liz Lange dress, thanks to Andee's recommendation.  I'm thinking I will need to bite the bullet soon and get some tops too.
Stretch marks? Not yet, and luckily my belly has not been itching the way I hear it can at this stage.

Sleep: This week, I've been tossing and turning a little more than normal, which is not easy with this belly.  But overall, it's been pretty good still!
Best moment this week: Ordering the rocker and getting more things in for the nursery!  Exciting!  OH and the barista at Starbucks asked me when I was due.  I know I look huge in these pictures but it really surprised me!  I just can't believe people can look at me know and know I'm preggers.  Makes me really happy!
Miss Anything? We've finally got some snow in Tahoe, which means lazy and uneventful weekends for me.  When you're stuck indoors, there's not a TON you can do...so I do miss being more social and active!
Movement: Lots of movement...I just love sitting with my belly and watching him go.  We can also really feel his little body from the outside now...it's crazy to push around and feel where it gets harder.  Just so surreal that I'm growing this little life.
Food cravings: Let's just say that if we have a fro yo place nearby, I would be eating that morning, noon, and night.  Sad for me...but probably for the best.  Still loving other sweets, like cuties, jam & toast, and Frosted Mini Wheat cereal.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Hmmm nothing really, though I avoid red meat and raw onions.
Gender: Studly little guy.
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Still pain in my upper left shoulder blade...seems to be brought on my stress and sitting too long.  When I'm lounging on the couch, it's non-existent.  And yeah, it's harder to bend over to put on my shoes...the belly is definitely getting in the way!
Belly Button in or out?  Still in...for now!
Wedding rings on or off?  On, though if I get too hot from exercising, my fingers swell up, so I avoid wearing my rings then.
Mood: Still super happy and upbeat for the most part!  Ready to move into the third trimester.
Looking forward to: My baby shower down in Newport Beach this weekend!  Cannot wait to see my family and friends and show off the bump!  Hopefully Baby Schue will be active and they can feel some kicks too!  :)



OH and I just had to include this picture.  Wilson already loves his baby brother so much!

  20. You look great. The pain in your shoulder blade, do you ever feel it after a big meal or if you are gassy? I had a pain on my right shoulder blade that came off and on when I was pregnant with Layla. I would get it more often when I was sitting as at that time I still had a full time job and was working in front of a computer all day pretty much. My OB said it was probably trapped gas that worked itself up in my shoulder.
